Why I love AT&T

So everyone knows that Verizon now sells the Apple iPhone. If you don’t, why are reading my blog? Anyway, about two weeks ago I received an email from AT&T highlighting their talk and surf feature that Verizon currently doesn’t offer along with a coupon for 25% any accessory of my choice. 25%? Not bad. I don’t need any accessories but that’s a good deal. (For those of you that don’t know, one downside to Verizon’s network is you can’t talk and surf simultaneously but they are working on enabling it.) Then I read that AT&T was now offering unlimited calling to any mobile number by signing up for free at www.att.com/anymobile. That means any mobile phone number that I call or calls me uses no minutes. Sweet, no more waiting until 9pm to talk!

get unlimited calling to
any mobile number in the U.S.

  • Unlimited talk and text with any mobile number on any U.S. carrier!
  • Does not count against your Anytime Minutes
  • Included with Unlimited Messaging plans – $20/month on an Individual Plan, $30/month for a FamilyTalk® Plan (up to 5 lines)
  • Available on $39.99 and higher Nation plans and $69.99 and higher FamilyTalk plans

Then I became aware of a promotion for loyal iPhone users. By simply texting “yes” to 11113020, AT&T will give you 1,000 rollover minutes which will last for a full year. Nice!

So why is AT&T being so “generous?” One reason, they are trying to keep as many customers as possible. Everyone knows that Verizon is by far the best cellular network in the United States and now that they sell the iPhone, what’s to stop all the current fustrated iPhone users using AT&T’s network from swithching? AT&T is hoping all of these “perks” will help but is this enough to stop the Verizon iPhone hemorrhage? Only time will tell. Until next time, Keep smiling, Inside and Out!

P.S. I have been a loyal AT&T customer since January 2005 and have had no problems with the company or their network. It all depends where you live.
